The 2014 NCAA tournament is chock-full of attractive NBA draft prospects, but who are the most unguardable of the bunch?

Athleticism and ball-handling ability certainly help, but they're not the only factors that make someone an indefensible force. Traits like timing, footwork and a quick shot release are also handy.

We broke down the guys who drive defenses crazy, ranking them based on their ability to create and make shots against their peers. Versatility and one-on-one scoring prowess were taken into account.

Our criteria for these rankings include college hoops stars who are top NBA draft prospects—in other words, standouts who are near locks to get drafted, most of them in the first round. We didn't include "unguardable" players who are long shots to get picked.

Which dark horses snuck onto our list, and who landed at the top?

 

*Joel Embiid omitted due to back injury, which has ruled him out until at least the second weekend of the tournament.
